Another milestone in the ministry of FCPO was reached on August 25th, as our 250th chapter was chartered in Sparta, Wisconsin.
It was a perfect day with sunshine and temperatures in the upper 60s as law enforcement officers from all local agencies, along with their families, gathered at Fisherman's Park in Sparta, WI for the annual Monroe County Law Enforcement Picnic.
This event is always well attended but this time, there was something extra special taking place. This year's picnic was combined with the official opening of the Coulee Region Chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Peace Officers-USA (Chapter #250).
After a time of food and fellowship, FCPO-USA Executive Director Paul Lee officially chartered the new chapter, presenting copies of the chapter charter certificate to each of the chapter officers. "We were blessed to have the Executive Director of FCPO with us on this special day", said Chapter Chairman Mike Larsen. "We had great food and a great turn out. Thanks to everyone who came out to be a part of our FCPO chapter opening!"
It's always encouraging to us at the National Office to see the ministry expand as new chapters come together and new energy is poured into dormant chapters. The ministry of FCPO is truly taking root in communities across the nation.
Congratulations, guys! We thank you for your commitment and we are looking forward to see how God is going to use you and work through the Coulee Region Chapter!
